Tim McGraw, music executive Scooter Braun, Big Machine Label Group and the Make-a-Wish Foundation recently helped make a Kentucky girl’s dream come true.

Scooter Braun, artist manager and CEO of HYBE-America, shared on Instagram Monday (April 29) that “this is the feel good story we all need right now” before diving into how he first heard about Emily, who has been battling an undisclosed illness, while he was in a Make-a-Wish board meeting in Nashville in January. Emily’s dream was to meet McGraw.

In his post — which features a carousel of photos from the country star’s visit with Emily — Braun shared that he reached out to McGraw, who immediately agreed to meet with his fan. However, two days before the meeting was to take place, a change in McGraw’s schedule meant he would no longer be in Nashville at that time. He had invited Emily to attend his concert in Nashville in April, but also decided he didn’t want to wait that long to meet with her, according to the exec.

Braun said in the Instagram post that McGraw instead offered to make the nearly three-hour drive from Nashville to Emily’s home in Kentucky to meet spend time with her and her family.

“Grateful to Tim and our Make a Wish family and the Big Machine racing team for making Emily’s wish come true,” Braun added in his caption. “Tim is truly humble and kind 🙂 True legend of a human! And yes Emily was at the show in Nashville with Tim this past weekend too :)”

Emily also shared her gratefulness by commenting on Braun’s post, saying, “I could never thank you guys enough for what you all did for me. @scooterbraun @thetimmcgraw @faithhill @makeawishamerica @scott.borchetta THANK YOU✨🩵 you all are amazing and i’m so thankful to have been apart of this organization😭💖”

McGraw continues on his Standing Room Only Tour, with its next stop being May 2 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
